Terriers Down Mudsox
The 16U Terriers evened their record at the Midwest Championships with a 6-4 win over the Indiana Mudsox on Sunday morning.
In the bottom of the first, Matthew Plut lead off with a walk. A couple of pitches later he was standing on third after a delay steal and an errant throw. Liam Wilson continued his torrid pace at the plate by lacing a two strike triple to the wall in right centre scoring Plut.
Wilson would score on Luke Tevlin's ground ball to second base.
Down 4-2 in the fourth, Steven Clewer doubled and was pinch run for by Michael Moffatt. Moffatt scored on Brandon Paul's double to left centre. The next inning saw the Terriers take the lead for good scoring two runs on four hits. After Plut lead off with a double, Kurt De Kock layed down a perfect sac bunt. With Plut on third, Tevlin cashed him in with a single before plating the fifth Terriers run on Andrew Lonsdale's single. Moffatt picked up a pinch hit single for his fourth hit of the tournament.
In the bottom of the sixth, Curtis Windsor added an insurance run with a mammoth home run over the right field wall.
Nav Cheema picked up the win with five complete innings. Cheema gave up two earned runs and struck out two. Kristian Trunzer picked up the six out save facing one batter over the minimum.
The Juniors are back home for a day before flying to Lubbock, Texas on Tuesday for the week long Premier Baseball World Series.
